What was the first soundtrack or composition that you listened to and how did it affect you?
The first thing I heard that really made an impact on me as a kid was the score to E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial. The first and last ten minutes of the film have hardly any dialogue. Both of those scenes are entirely music-driven. While I didn’t realise it at the time, they were also the perfect example of music’s ability to emotionally drive the story home on an almost subliminal level.
